LOW TO BRING CURTAIN DOWN ON PLAYING CAREER

Exeter Chiefs prop Moray Low says the time is right for him to bring the curtain down on his distinguished playing career and look to a future away from the professional game. Brought to Devon in 2014 from Glasgow Warriors, the Scottish international has played his part in helping Rob Baxter’s side establish themselves as a proven force, not only within the English game, but on the European stage too.

Having made his name North of the Border with Glasgow Warriors, whom he spent eight seasons with, Low has proved a shrewd signing by Baxter, amassing 70 first team appearances for the Chiefs, scoring seven tries in the process. At 35, though, the life of a front-row forward is never easy and with competition aplenty for Low to contend with, the Toprhins-born powerhouse is ready to hang his boots up and pursue the next chapter in his life. “Coming to the Chiefs, it’s been fantastic for me,” he said. “I knew when I came down five years ago that the club were going places and that’s certainly been the cases. For me, personally, it’s been great to be part of a great journey, seeing where the club has come from to where it is now. “At the time, it was a big move for me. I’d had eight great years with Glasgow, so I was coming out of my comfort zone. However, I wanted to play in the Premiership and really challenge myself. From day one, it’s been very enjoyable, playing and working alongside some great people, and it’s definitely made me a better player. “To retire now at the end of the season, it’s definitely the right time for me. I’m very happy with what I’ve done, what I’ve achieved, and I know the club will continue to move in the right direction in the future. We’ve got a number of internationals props - on both sides of the scrum - and behind them we’ve got a really good group of young lads who are coming through.” Moving forward, Low will continue as a director of Tomahawk Homes, as well as taking on a new post with Thomas Mae, who specialise in residential development and land investment opportunities, offering professional advice to landowners, developers and house builders.
